I am looking for more information on this surname, and would appreciate if anyone could provide me with it. I am related to this surname through a Daniel L. Mickey, and he was born in the Fayette/Westmoreland area.
His mom was Saloma/Salome Hoopopole/Hoopole/Whoopole?, and she was born sometime around the mid to late 1820s. Her husband was George Washington Mickey, and he was born in Jul 11, 1824 in Casselman, Somerset, Pennsylvania.
I would appreciate it if anyone might have any understanding of this seemingly rare surname.

Mickey, Solomay, Salome
I suspect you might be getting your wires crossed here somewhere.
The only entry that's coming up for anyone called saloma etcetera and a mickey is an 1866 marriage in Louisa Virginia between 2 African American former slaves and all your other names are coming up as white people.
That weddding involved a woman called solomay which is probably a corruption of salome.
Your saloma or whoever if it really is connected to you might even be a corruption of Solomon.
Those woople doople names are obviously a corruption of other names possibly germanic what's the source for those names and what's your source for salome or whomever. ?
There are some good fits for some of the Mickey names.
For example an 1880 census result for Casselman, Somerset, Pennsylvania lists a Mickey family, father = george 55 born 1825 wife mary 56 born 1824 = son daniel 18 born 1862 cousin harman lee 18 born 1862
a pretty close fit and census years/ages can commonly be out by a year or two either way.
all the birth locations fit.
What's your anchor point for all this, by anchor point I mean something or someone that you KNOW for certaian is connected to your family.
For example, someone probably knows definite information about their grandmother and works backwards from that, as opposed to jumping back a 100 years and grabbing onto someone becausethe name and location are similar.

If by the rare surname you refer to you mean the Mickey surname...well that name derives from Scotland and is connected with the MacDonald clan, and in particular with the MacDonalds of Keppoch who were particularly prominent in the 1744/1745 Jabobite rebellion of Bonnie Prince Charlie aka Charles Edward Stuart in Scotland against the English crown.
